Aryan Path Vol. 6.12
The effort of the Aryan Path is not to proselytize anyone to any creed, but to quicken men’s spiritual intuitions, and to point to the bedrock of truth underlying dogmas and sects, rites and superstitions, so that those who will may energize themselves to uncover it. It urges no beliefs upon its readers- in fact, it deprecates beliefs not based on knowledge, pure reason and clear intuition.
The Aryan Path stands for free and open enquiry and discussion- above all for intellectual honesty… It is a symbol and a messenger: it symbolizes the NOBLE PATH of all eras and its message to every human soul is- Seek out the Way which leads to Enlightenment, to Sacrifice. It is but a humble organ of the Eternal, Spiritual Movement of Wisdom, but that it clams to be, and therefore its function is and ever will be to-
"Point out the Way- however dimly, and lost among the host- as does the evening star to those who tread their path in darkness."
"The Aryan Path was an Anglo-Indian theosophical journal published in Bombay, India from 1930. Its purpose was to form "a nucleus of universal brotherhood of humanity, without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or color; to study ancient and modern religions, philosophies, and sciences, and to demonstrate the importance of such study". The magazine's first editor was B.P. Wadia. It was published on a bimonthly basis by a group called the Theosophy Company, which distributed copies of the magazine to London.
It was founded in January 1930. In its first edition, a writer named "Shravaka" emphasised that...
so much "original" writing is done today, so much "self-expression" is indulged in that, in the glamour that is raised, the chants of the Gods remain unheard. One of our tasks is to bring home the truth that it is not derogatory to respect the old age facts of the science of the soul.
The Aryan Path aims not only at presenting great truths in simple garb but also at developing inner depth in those who may desire to fit themselves to help and teach others. The world is in sore need of such. They must be capable of plantings the seeds of truth in the hearts of the simple and the humble, but that very capacity depends upon their own assimilation of truths which are as yet beyond the grasp of mere physical vision or the observation of facts.
